From the cold lands of Scandinavia an age old threat once again lands on the shores of Englaland with the intent to conquer or die. These Danes have already taken much of Englaland, and continue to take more. East Anglia and much of the north has fallen, and in recent years the eastern half of the great Kingdom of Mercia has been brutally conquered. The near dead kingdom of Mercia will now rely on the West Saxons to defend them and drive the Viking out, only time will tell if they are capable enough to do it. While the English plot, scheme and drive off invaders, the Viking have established themselves and created the Danelaw. Covering much of this land, and they now look to take even more land to help fill their greedy coffers. West of Mercia live the Welsh, and while Mercia remains weak and struggling the Kingdom of Gwynedd flourishes, over the past years gathering new territory to expand its borders throughout much of Wales.

Throughout the wars, strife and poverty, men look to take up arms and fight for survival through any means, be it good or evil. English forests are soon to be steeped in blood...

Factions
Wessex
Danelagh
Gwynedd


Danelagh will be released for Warband Multiplayer!
Due to lacking the time and team to currently complete the mod, I will be first releasing Danelagh as playable only in Mulitplayer. With some new maps, and the three factions you see above.


Poll
Here are three variations of this armour, but which one should be used in multiplayer for Gwynedd? Please vote!

This is my first mod for Mount & blade, so I'm learning as I go along.  :wink:

Also, big thanks to Talak and his Unique Armory mod!

Thanks guys.

To those interested, it takes place toward the end of the the 9th century, around the early reign of Alfred the Great. Guthrum will be the leader of the Danelaw.

Great idea.
Also remember the many fine OSP (Open Source Projects) items,
Rath0s: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,83476.0.html (the shields might fit)
and AlphaDelta's: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,62865.0.html
Silverwolf might also have a few: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/topic,65281.0.html (helmets perhaps)

Maybe, there's a bit of space between the the north of the map and Scotland though. Not all of England is in you see, it ends around York.
Could include a few Pictish arms and armors though.

Thanks Adorno.

Scandinavians? So you could use dejawolf's open source viking stuff. I'd give you a link but I don't have one. It's somewhere in the Forge.

Excellent idea! You may also take some models from 867 A.D - Lords of War mod: http://forums.taleworlds.com/index.php/board,100.0.html and of course my mod, Song of Taliesin!  :grin:

I wonder if someone could help me :oops: I did mention I'm new to all his Mount & Blade modding...

I've tried to add in AlphaDeltas stuff but when I enter a armor shop that has them I get this:
"Unable to find mesh ad_viking_costumes_02"

Is the mesh the file in the resource folder?

check if you added the BRF in module.ini
There's the problem, I didn't realize that had to be done. Is there a tutorial about it because I don't have a clue what I need to add.
